The Ministry of Father David M. Knight Continues

Immersed in Christ is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to continue spreading the Gospel through Fr. Knight’s distinctive approach to growing our relationships with Jesus Christ. Our expanding volunteer board, established by Fr. Knight, intends to grow the market for his many publications that have been already been shared in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia, Poland, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, India, Japan, and many other countries. Nationally, even globally, hundreds of thousands of believers have embraced Father Knight’s ways of “Reaching Jesus.”

Knight’s first major work, His Way, An Everyday Plan for Following Jesus, first published in 1977, other more recent highly popular works include: Reaching Jesus – Five Steps to a Fuller Life, Nuts & Bolts Spirituality, and most recently, The Way of the Spirit: Using the Gifts, Showing the Fruits published in 2021 and numerous booklets conveying the principles of his living spirituality practices.
